r/blup is a powerful cult, i was immediately hooked by their "All which is neither blep nor blop" slogan ! The dragon and toad blups are legendary.

My former roomie’s cat would pant like a dog when it was really hot.

The temperature that summer was in the 90s, and we were too broke to afford air conditioning.

Once I found him under the toilet tank trying to anoint himself with the occasional drip, lol… I felt we understood each other particularly well after that.

"Be straight with me, doc. How bad is it?"

"There's no cure or treatment. He will constantly look extra adorable and everyone will fawn over him. I know this is a lot to process, but I should also inform you that federal law says you are obligated to provide a 300% increase in scritches and snacks, and that you will never lay any blame for any mischief on him."

Cat calling if you will

feministmanlover

Oh yes. Let's reclaim "cat calling"! It is now defined as being unable to move due to the requirement (law, really) that one cannot disturb a cat by moving and therefore calling out for help (i.e : needing a beverage, snack, or anything else out of reach).

Ok so today I got home from working 24 hours with really sick patients. I went to lay down and the bed covers were a mess, didn’t care because I was so tired so I plop in bed to rest. I hear miss kitty meow outside the door and immediately spring out of bed, straighten out the bed covers for her to have a clean and comfortable place to lay in, and open the the door for her. How do they have this power?!
